Renaissance was a period in European history in the 14th century in Italy

primarily in the northern big cities like Florence, Venice and Rome. It was the end of

the middle ages and the beginning of the modern times. Renaissance means re-birth and

this word represent the birth of a more liberal and humanistic period which does not

mean that the culture became all human and out of religion. This means that we start to

see the culture started to show signs of   secularity but still very religious. The rise of

trade,

commercial activity and prosperity of the high middle ages generated   big changes

culturally. More money was invested in culture and people became more and more

interested in the expansion learning and literature universities started to rise around the

western territory, for it was an age of exploration, scientific revolution and rise of

modern science. People started to adopt a new way of thinking a good example of it is

that artists started to sign their work   and the way their work was more classical and

realistic. They started to reflect by the art the style of living of this time. Artists like da

Vinci and Michelangelo started to paint portraits and more secular art with emphasis on

individuals.

As I said before the renaissance was characterized by having a more humanistic t

thought. Humanism upholds the greatness of man and celebrates man creation which is

the opposite of what happened in the early middle ages. The power of church also had a

critical decline in the control on society and government. More money that could be

product of corruption was invested and it made people question and started to lose

confidence in them, and it produced the protestant reformation.

urbanization-growth of towns and cities, banking and business developments were a

result of this decline....
